Welcome to a specail episode of 'What the Shell' brought to you by Positively Nerdy!
In this episode we talk to Adam from the DLUX Entertainment Expo to get the inside scoop on the upcoming show on March 28th- 30th!

From the DLUX website:

My name is Adam Lux, and I am the host of what will be known as one of the most exciting, fun, energetic and amazing events ever to reach our area - The first Official D-Lux Entertainment Expo!

I am a huge fan of everything Hollywood: Action movies, horror, sci-fi, reality television, comic books, graphic novels, and most of all - Martial Arts. I have been practicing Martial Arts since I was a child. Today, I'm a ranked national competitor and successful school owner in Washington, Michigan. I have hosted my own martial art tournament for many years - the D-Lux Charity Challenge - and we have raised tens of thousands of dollars for many notable charities. We have drawn thousands of competitors and spectators throughout the years, and it is my goal to combine the worlds of Hollywood, Martial Arts, and Pop Culture for an event that will be talked about forever! This is what the D-Lux Entertainment Expo will be!

This year we have amazing guests already slated including Bill Goldberg, Ernie Reyes Jr. of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fame, as well as hundreds of television shows and movies, and of course we have the co-creator of the Ninja Turtles himself - Mr. Kevin Eastman! Other guests include UFC Superstar Cung Le, Taimak - the star of the classic martial art movie "The Last Dragon," and "Master Ken," star of the YouTube phenomenon "Enter The Dojo".

We will also host many other notable martial arts masters and celebrities, who will be offering guest signings, judging at our tournament, and making guest appearances throughout the weekend. Join the Fun!

Radical Corner of Turtle Comic Talk

Posted by whattheshell on 10th January 2014

Welcome to the Radical Corner of Turtle Comic Talk!  Suine Hallock and Ryan Porter are reunited after a short end-of-year hiatus bringing you discussion on the three most recent issues of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from IDW Publishing!

It's been far too long since Ryan and Suine had a chance to chat so you'll get to catch-up with the two of them as they catch-up with each other as the episode begins.  Then, after they congratulate our friend Pixel Dan and his wife Christina on the birth of their son Spencer, its onto the Turtle comics!

While they were away, the City Fall event ended in issue #28  and the Villain Micro-Series reaches its finale with Shredder!  Suine and Ryan discuss not only these two issues but recap the entirety of the City Fall event before moving on to issue #29, which sees the Turtles attempting to move on and recover from recent events.

If you've been avoiding this series, issue #29 is your perfect jumping-on point-of-entry.  Just don't admit that you haven't been reading because you should've been all along!

Radical Corner of Turtle Comic Talk

Posted by whattheshell on 23rd August 2013

Welcome to Positively Nerdy!  It’s time to once again explore the world of IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics with your hosts Ryan Porter and Suine Hallock in the latest installment of the Radical Corner of Turtle Comic Talk.  In this special episode of RCTCT, Suine and Ryan are joined by writer Erik Burnham!

Erik Burnham is a frequent writer on the one-shots and mini-series that accompany IDW’s main, ongoing TMNT series.  Erik wrote the one-shots for Splinter and Baxter Stockman, collaborated with writer and artist Mateus Santolouco on The Secret History of the Foot Clan mini-series and wrote the Free Comic Book Day issue of the New Animated Adventures.  That issue serves as a sort of ‘zero issue’ to the new Nickelodeon cartoon-inspired comic series.  Erik also wrote the Karai one-shot, which is out this week! (Assuming you’re reading this in a relatively timely manner.)

Throughout the episode Ryan and Suine discuss with Erik the behind-the-scenes of working on a series like TMNT, collaborating with a variety of artists and follow creators and the constant battle to keep as many of his jokes in the final script as possible.  You’ll also catch information on the new Karai issue, Erik’s love of caffeine and we all share a moment in remembering that Sam Rockwell was the cigarette-peddling thug in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle feature film.  And just for good measure we discuss Erik’s terrific work on Ghostbusters also for IDW and his new gig working with Chris Yost on Scarlet Spider!

We want to thank Erik for coming on the show and be sure you’re all checking out his amazing work!

Radical Corner of Turtle Comic Talk

Posted by whattheshell on 7th August 2013

Welcome to Positively Nerdy!  It’s once again time join myself and our awesome pal Suine Hallock as we head into the Radical Corner of Turtle Comic Talk!  This time around we’re talking Alopex, City Fall and the new Animated Adventures!

We say it every time but it needs to be said again: this series just keeps getting better and better!  The City Fall event is heating up with the reveal of ‘dark’ Leonardo – one of comics’ worst kept secrets during the last few months – and the story has readers on the edge of their seats.  Suine and I begin the episode discussing the Alopex Micro-Series issue by Brian Lynch and Ross Campbell.  Lynch and Campbell craft a masterful tale, getting inside Alopex’s head, revealing her past as well as dramatic clues to what her future might hold.  Then it’s onto issue #24 of the ongoing series .  Crafted and written, as always, with Kevin Eastman and Tom Waltz and artwork by Mateus Santolouco.  This issue is overflowing with story including: Shredder and Karai’s relationship, the new dynamic between Slash and the Turtles, the cunning of Old Hob and the aforementioned reveal of ‘dark’ Leonardo!  And if you’re digging the Nickelodeon TMNT cartoon then IDW has you covered with the all-new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures.  We discuss the first issue by Kenny Byerly and Dario Brizuela as a perfect companion to the animated series this issue finally convinced me that the ‘Nick toon’ verison of April is the best iteration of the character we’ve ever had.
